COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop-Heads, your dreams have come true! Hop Ottin' is Boontling for "hardworking hops," and they're surely hard at work in this brew. Hop Ottin' starts with a strong floral aroma, which winds into a deep and complex body. In an intriguing balance, honey-drenched malts coat rich hop undertones. At length, the hops prevail, with a satisfyingly crisp finish. Hop Ottin' bites like a cankicky bluetail (Hop Ottin' bites like a rattlesnake looking for a fight.)

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2006 Sampled out of the 12 ounce bottle. Poured a coppery orange color with a thick white head. The lacing was pretty nice but I have seen better. Aroma was very hoppy with citrus and graitfruit. The maltiness was lacking in the aroma and the taste. Pretty good and worth a try.

One of my favorite IPAs! I have put off rating this, I don’t know why, Had again tonight, and loved it as much as ever. Very balanced, Citrus flavor, well hopped, very No.Cal. I always enjoy this beer.

The thing that really sets this IPA apart for me is the creamy, caramel malts that were present near the finish. They really add a nice complexity to the body. Solid IPA all around.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - APR 15, 2005
12oz - floral aroma of hops. Light amber with small head and good lacing. Taste is good but nothing special. Citrus and hops dominate. I’m a bit spoiled on the IPA front in San Diego and this comes off as mediocre. A good session brew.

JFGrind (1842) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2005
No directions needed to figure out where this IPA was brewed. With a citrus floral aroma, medium body, not over the top bitterness the brewery’s location can only be in Northern California. It’s a vibrant IPA with seven percent alcohol content. "Proteja el ambiente no la tire" - yes, I recycled the bottle.

Golden copper color with a thick white head. Nice malt nose but not any discernable floral or citrus notes which is weird for an IPA. Bitter throughout. Very tasty but if your going to go ahead and make a beer this bitter you might as well add the extra malt backbone and hops to give it a more aggresive personality.

Darkover (1513) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2005
Light amber color with a beige head, has some pretty heavy lacing. Citrus and piney hop aroma. Flavor of citrus hops and some malt. Bitter finish.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - APR 4, 2005
On Tap. Pours a dark amber color, thick, frothy white head. Aroma of pine sol, flowers and lemon. Flavor is more hops with a sweetness to it. Malt does balance out the hops to this. Not Bad.

radiomgb (2236) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2005
Bottle. Copper/amber in colour with a thin white head and left some very nice lace. Aroma was of floral hops, some citrus and light caramel malt. The flavour starts off more floral and end with the citrus kick. Sugary sweet medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a lingering bitterness. Nice stuff, 7% - unbelievable. Thanks for the beer Crosling.

Rich copper colour beckons you so very invitingly. Nice malty balance to the floral and citrus hop aromas. Same again through the flavours - a touch maltier than you might expect but it works nicely with the floral hops. Finishes beautifully with a lingering bitterness. I’d like some more please.
